Change is further complicated as it does not always produce a direct adjustment. Each employee's attitude produces a different response that is conditioned by feelings towards the change.
When change is introduced, each employee's personal history and social situation at work will produce a different attitude towards that change. You cannot see or measure attitudes, but what you can see and measure is the response towards that change:
Change + Personal experience (nurture) + Social situation (environment) = Attitude + Response
Although each person will have a different response to change (personal experience), they often show their attachment to the group (social situation at work) by joining in a uniform response to the change.
Despite each person wanting something different, such as place more demands, ignore the change, work harder, etc.; the need to belong to a group often sways individuals to follow a few individuals ("we are all in this together.” Sometimes the response towards change is influenced mostly by personal experience, at other times it's swayed by the social situation.
